In recent years, there has been a trend when the reliability of equipment has fallen significantly, as a result, such machines often break down, requiring appropriate after-sales service and expensive repairs. Most often, engines fail, which during operation have increased loads. To eliminate such breakdowns is extremely difficult and in most cases it is necessary to carry out major repairs, the cost of which is comparable to buying a new motor. Let’s talk in more detail about the reasons why the engines in cars break down.
The main causes of frequent engine breakdowns in modern cars
Car owners with experience remember the reliability of the first foreign cars that appeared on the Continue reading
The compact crossover Nissan Qashqai was first demonstrated as a concept in 2004, two years after this event, the car was launched in a series. This model immediately after its appearance began to enjoy high popularity. In the first year of sales in Europe alone, more than 100 thousand copies of Qashqai were sold. In 2008, the Nissan concern began to release a modernized version of Qashqai + 2. This car differs from the standard crossover with an elongated wheelbase of 135 mm, which made it possible to provide the salon with seven seats. In 2009, the car underwent a light restyling, as a result of which no significant changes were made to its design. Continue reading
In order for the car to be able to effectively go into a controlled skid and at the same time maintain controllability, it must have a number of mandatory features. The first feature is the presence of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. With some skill, front-wheel drive models can also be torn into drift, but it will not be as safe and predictable as on rear-wheel-drive cars. The second desirable condition is the presence of a powerful motor under the hood, the higher the power, the easier it will be to let the car skid. The presence of a rear axle lock function is just as highly desirable as an understated ride height and a stiffer suspension with a 40/60 weight distribution between the axles. Continue reading
Operating a dirty car is not aesthetically pleasing to the driver and harmful to the vehicle. It is especially important to wash the car from time to time during the winter period of operation, despite the fact that at the indicated time of the year it “picks up” less than, for example, in spring or autumn. This is due to the fact that in the cold season roads are strewn with special reagents that prevent icing of the road surface. The reagents used by the road services do not in the best way affect the metal of the car body, and the process of its corrosion is significantly accelerated. Therefore, it is necessary to wash a car in winter, although it can be done not as often as in other seasons.
Self-service car wash in winter: benefit or harm? Continue reading
Why do we need automotive options, which in most cases have to be installed for an additional and often substantial fee? Due to a variety of high-tech devices, the operation of the machine becomes orders of magnitude more comfortable and safe. Agree that it is better in winter to leave the house to get into the car with the engine and interior already warmed up than to freeze while standing near the car or sitting in it waiting for it to start moving.
TOP 10: the most useful options in a modern car
Or, it will be more convenient to evaluate the situation in the rear hemisphere through viewing cameras, rather than through traditional mirrors, in the reflection of which dead zones invariably form. That is, it Continue reading
